Graham Hill Scrapbook 1929 -1966 free pdf Graham Hill (1929-1975) is the only driver to have won motor racing's triple crown - the World Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and the Le Mans 24-Hour race. This is a remarkable achievement and unlikely ever to be matched. This book charts the legendary racer's struggle to become a world-beater. It follows Hill from his childhood, through his humble beginnings as an apprentice and unpaid mechanic working all hours in return for the odd drive, to the heights of World Championship fame in 1962, ending with his landmark Indianapolis win in 1966. In Hill's own words and those of the people close to him, the book graphically illustrates his many battles, the inherent danger and his sheer dogged determination. This is more than just a motor racing book because Graham Hill was so much more than just a racing driver. He was one of the last great sporting characters and had a wicked sense of humour. It is fascinating to hear his contemporaries describe him and his many qualities. Apart from Lotus and BRM Grand Prix cars, Hill drove the finest sports and GT cars of this period, including examples of Ferrari Test Rossa, 250GT swb, 250 GTO, 330P and 250LM- Birdcage Maserati, Jaguar E-type and Lightweight E, Porsche RSK
